Common Kids Dentistry Meadowdale

Procedures Part 1

Stainless steel crown (SSC)

Stainless steel crowns are used to restore molars that are too decayed to hold white fillings. If left untreated, cavities in back teeth can cause severe damage to the enamel, dentin, and sometimes the nerve (pulp) of the tooth. In such cases, tooth-colored fillings are out of the question and stainless steel crowns are needed.These off-the-shelf silver crowns will fit. Cement is then applied to the primary tooth to prevent further damage until the tooth is lost on its own.

 

Tooth-colored filling (composite resin)

Tooth-colored fillings are used when restoring anterior or posterior teeth or when aesthetic appearance is important. Composite materials are used to repair broken or decayed teeth. The color of the synthetic filling should match the color of your natural teeth as closely as possible.

 

Dental X Ray (X-ray)

Dental X Ray The Robinson Family and Cosmetic Dentistry recommends x-rays every six months for children at high risk of tooth decay. Children at low risk of tooth decay should have less frequent x-rays. At our clinic, we use digital x-rays, which reduce the radiation exposure to about 1/4 that of conventional dental x-rays.

Teeth Cleaning

When you visit the best kids dentist Meadowdale, your dentist will first discuss with you your child's medical history. We keep track of your child's general health so that we can check for possible factors. We will then examine the general health of your child's mouth. Next, your child's teeth are thoroughly cleaned to remove plaque and tartar (hard deposits of tartar) that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. After cleaning, fluoride is applied to the teeth to protect and strengthen weak areas against cavities. For healthy children, Robinson Family and Cosmetic Dentistry  recommends seeing a pediatric dentist at least every six months to assess your child's oral health and development. However, if your child has special needs or is prone to cavities, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits to monitor your child's oral health more closely.

 

Fluoride

Tooth decay occurs when the mineral composition of tooth enamel weakens. Fluoride promotes remineralization of these demineralized areas and helps prevent tooth decay. Some bodies of water naturally contain low levels of fluoride. Municipal water supplies are often fluoridated to specific standards. Fluoride is also found in many household products such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and even bottled water.

The best kids dentist Meadowdale will monitor your child's dental development and prescribe the specific amount of fluoride your child needs. In general, there is a balance between too much and too little fluoride. Excess fluoride can damage developing teeth and cause fluorosis. A child's teeth are more prone to cavities if they are deficient in fluoride. Fluorosis comes in many forms and affects the development of permanent teeth by forming white spots.

 

Cavity Treatment

 

Tooth decay (cavities) is a progressive disease that often begins in young children. Bacteria that normally live in your mouth react with sugars in food and drink to produce acids. This acid can slowly erode the enamel of your child's teeth and even damage their sensitive gums. When tooth enamel is lost, weak spots are formed in the tooth. These weak spots can become hollow, which alone can lead to irreversible nerve damage. Kids dentistry Meadowdale is specially trained to help prevent those cavities and therefore avoid tooth decay, toothache or even tooth extraction.
